Meat Fight is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that I'm throwing at Sons of Hermann Hall in Deep Ellum on November 4. In addition to mind-blowing meats for eating, there will be beers from Deep Ellum Brewing Company. There will be Knob Creek tastings. Proceeds from the event will benefit the National MS Society.

Tickets go on sale ... now. They're $50 each. I know that sounds expensive, but: brisket, pulled pork, sausage, beer and charity. You do the math.

If that's not enough to sell you, consider this photograph of Neighborhood Services' Jeff Bekavac:

Three teams of legendary Dallas chefs will compete for barbecue glory in four categories: brisket, pulled pork, sausage and wild card.

They will be judged by the best pitmasters in Texas (you could potentially see Tim Byres chest bump Aaron Franklin who's high five-ing Justin Fourton while he's chest-bumping Will Fleischman who's beard-bumping Nick Pencis, who's side-hugging Stephan Joseph). Daniel Vaughn will be judging, too, and he's on fire with barbecue popularity now that he's been on No Reservations.

The trophies are 40-ounce beers with pigs and cows on top of them. Yes, really.

There will be a meat-related silent auction that, I promise you, will have unicorn farts lip balm in it, plus VIP access to local restaurants, plus tons of cool barbecue-y stuff that you want to buy and this pillow:

@ABCBBD Meatloaf is opening, but his contract limits his BBQ consumption.

@AnonMeatLover This screams for a reduced price day two featuring leftovers and warm beer.

Sorry Alice. I figured out what the blue font means. This commenting software sucks. Still no edit function.
